Walking or Running: Which Provides Quicker Weight Loss?

List: Posted: 08/12/11

Those who have weight loss in mind will often wonder what types of exercise are the best for the quickest weight loss.  They want to be able to lose the weight fast and keep it off.  Besides the commitment that it takes to being healthy and knowing that you have to eat right, exercise is the best thing for permanent weight loss.  Many types of exercise are great for quick weight loss, but two of the most popular are walking and running.


In terms of what method is better for permanent weight loss, it all depends on your current shape, as well as which one is preferable to you.  If you like running and it doesn’t hurt your joints, then you should run.  If you enjoy having a relaxing workout, go on a nice walk in your neighborhood.  For better results, you can opt to do fast walking, which is a popular activity for weight loss among city dwellers.


Challenge yourself to walk or run faster or further each day.  These little competitions with yourself can do wonders for your weight loss, as well as for your self-esteem.  When you see that you are making progress, you are more likely to keep up with the weight loss regimen.


The real key to making your weight loss permanent is consistency, and the way to build consistency is to have a routine.  You want to have a daily walk or run, but you need to make sure that it isn’t boring.  Find new routes and walk or run with your friends who have their own weight loss goals.  The more you change up your routine, the more you'll stay interested in doing cardio, and the quicker you'll lose weight without going anywhere near a gym.
